Foxy Friends "Just Because" Racoon

It's Wacky Wednesday!  Every day is just one step closer to going back to work... boooo!  Yesterday we ended up staying most of the afternoon and evening at my parents house.  Marc had to go work on their computer and I just hung out.  For dinner we had some amazing pretzel crusted fish that was so delicious!  I didn't get a lot done but it was so nice to spend time with my parents and relax.

Today I am conflicted on my plans.  To go, or not to go; that is the question.  Should I go into work and work for 3 hours, or should I put it off and continue to stress about it?  I have a lot of stamping projects that I want to get done as well.... you will have to wait until tomorrow to see what I end up doing!

I have another Foxy Friends card for you!  This card was cased from the catalog, right where the the Foxy Friends bundle is located!  I changed up a few things and created this easy peasy card.  Supplies are almost the same as yesterday.... you really have to get the DSP paper stack, smoky slate ribbon and card stock pack to go along with the bundle.  It's too perfect to pass up!
Don't forget... I am offering a free INK PAD with EVERY $50 purchase you make (until July 30)!  That is a $6.50 value for free!  You can purchase online in my store (and I will mail the ink pad to you) or you can contact me to place the order!  Make sure to use hostess code: PPZSGEY2 when ordering from my online store so I know who to contact for the free ink pad(s) and 5 monthly cards pictured below!  Thanks for picking me as your demonstrator!

Foxy Friends All Occassion Fox

Hi there!  It's already Tuesday and I only have one more week left of summer vacation!  Yesterday I went to my school for half a day and worked on emptying the boxes from when I moved in.  When I moved into my new classroom in June, I just had my students put the boxes everywhere (bad idea).  I unpacked them all and now I just have to do lots of filing (left my files a mess at the end of the year) and to redo my classroom library (not required, but something I want to do).  Along with that I have treats to make, lots to laminate (starting some new things this year) and tons of planning.

Today I decided to stay home and work on things at home!  I started to set up my new Erin Condren Teacher Plan Book (I am still having sticker shock but it IS amazing) and have been catching up on all of my computer work.  I am so excited to share this card using the Foxy Friends Bundle.  I have to admit, I wasn't going to get this bundle but the cute little animals sold me!

Most of you might think I have tons of money to buy all of the papers and ribbons for each catalog.  This is not true!  LOL  I participate in shares!  If I get enough interest, I can hold another one in August.  How it works is that I order all the papers and ribbons and 4-5 people share all of the packs together.  Everyone gets the same amount of each print.
Anyway, I used the A Little Foxy Designer Series Paper Stack.  I used the coordinating inks and card stock to create this card: Pool Party, Smoky Slate and Calypso Coral.  I love the the adorable fox... isn't he so cute?

Don't forget... I am offering a free INK PAD with EVERY $50 purchase you make (until July 30)!  That is a $6.50 value for free!  You can purchase online in my store (and I will mail the ink pad to you) or you can contact me to place the order!  Make sure to use hostess code: PPZSGEY2 when ordering from my online store so I know who to contact for the free ink pad(s) and 5 monthly cards pictured below!  Thanks for following me!

Donuts for You!

Good Evening!  Yesterday I had some fun at my local scrapbook store that had a free Christmas in July event.  I learned 3 new techniques and had soooo much fun!  Today was a day filled with lots of cleaning and organization after church!  Then I decided to start printing all of the things I have downloaded over the summer.  After printing enough to run out of ink (who knew there was such a little amount of ink in those ink cartridges?).  I just realized I never posted my cute donut cards for you!
I created these cards for a few important people in my life.  I love how they turned out!  I used Stampin' Up! inks and a Simon Says Stamp Set.  The stamp set is properly named "I love donuts".  
Wondering how I made the cute little donut look so realistic?  I colored them all with Spectrum Noir markers and then added Liquid Applique.  Before I heat set the liquid, I added some fun sequins I had from a shaker card kit.  When heating the applique, make sure to heat from the underside - so the heat doesn't burn the "frosting".  There is a new product called Tsukineko Radiant Neon AMPLIFY Puff Ink that creates a similar affect and comes in all sorts of great colors. 
I love both sentiments and this card was sent to my chemo angel with a Dunkin' Donuts gift card!  I really love the long thing stamp with rings.... it created a really cute effect.

Don't forget... to celebrate my birthday this past Monday, I am offering a free INK PAD with EVERY $50 purchase you make (July 23-30th)!  That is a $6.50 value for free!  You can purchase online in my store (and I will mail the ink pad to you) or you can contact me to place the order!  Make sure to use hostess code: PPZSGEY2 when ordering from my online store so I know who to contact for the free ink pad(s) and 5 monthly cards!
Thanks for following me!  See you tomorrow for some Stampin' Up! inspiration!

Watercolor Wash Technique Video

Good Morning!  Yesterday we spent most of the day with my parents and in the afternoon.  We took them to our favorite store - Aldi!  Marc had to work in the afternoon/ evening for one of his contracts.  I walked Arnie, took a nice long nap, and created some thank you notes.  We made Sweet Potato bowls (a Plated recipe) and enjoyed a late dinner while watching Big Brother.  

I am so excited to share today's project with you.  I have a video to go with this project!  My first official tutorial video for my blog.  =)  I made this card to show the Watercolor Rainbow Technique.  I love all things rainbows so this card is perfect!  Please check out my video and give it a thumbs up so I know you want more videos in the future!
Here is the final version of the card I made using the thinking of you sentiment.  I used some Bermuda Bay ribbon and sequin trim to add a little fun to this card.

Pair of Pears: Fresh Fruit

It's hump day!  Every day that goes by is one day closer to school starting for me on August 2.  Yesterday I crafted all day and even recorded a video for you all!  I can't wait to share either tomorrow or Friday.  Today we are going to lunch with my parents and my mom made me a cheesecake to have for a birthday desert.  It's so hot outside that I don't really enjoy being out after 1pm.  LOL  I don't know how I ended up in this Florida heat, but I am here.  

Anyway, I have a beautiful birthday card for you using the Fresh Fruit Stamp Set.  I copied this idea from the Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog.  Wondering how I did the pears?  I stamped them on Watercolor Paper and then used an Aquapainter to color the insides.  I added some yellow to the insides and mixed it with the Pear Pizzaz.  They really ended up looking like a real pear!
